Austrailian Transformers Animated Promo with Hasbro Designer Eric Siebenaler - Transformers News
Safety concerns? Really? wow.
Is he lolling at an Armada Laserbeak there? Fantastic.
Some decent tidbits there, but the repaint news is a little bleh, regardless of being fairly expected. Don't have to buy em and all that jazz.
The new BB sounds interesting.
I wonder if Hasbro finally answered our prayers for a Cybertron mode Bumblebee. Scout class for film...better not be repaints again!
Please put his battle mask on !!!!! PLEASE
Ooo, yeah, I certainly hope so. A new mold would allow it to be repainted into Cliffjumper and/or pre-beast Wasp, too.
Well, since Eric is working on DESIGNING them, I'd say not.
Hopefully it'll be a cybertron mode bumblebee.
If not I'll still be happy, if a bit disappointed.
Although, I'm not sure what to do with the Bumblebee I already have though.
Maybe I'll use him to represent animated on my "Misc. Transformers" shelf.
Siebenaler goodness -- yay!
I'll echo the wishes for Cybertronian BB.
Glad Arcee is confirmed as making to the mold stage!
To play devil's advocate, it just says he's working on the size classes, not designing molds. And new color scheme work for old molds would still be "design" work.
Having said that, I'm relatively sure it was said somewhere that there would be new Scout molds for Transformers: Rolling on the Floor.
There's a whole bunch of really interesting stuff in there - Siebenaler sounds like a great guy - but the bit that intrigues me the most is this:
"Told us why we haven't seen any Animated Constructicon toys yet, but I can't say why here at this time."
So there's something about the Constructicons that Hasbro doesn't want us to know yet? Hmm, interesting. Wonder what that could be.
Wow, an entirely new mold being designed specifically so that it will be more in scale with the other figures. Maybe that news will finally mute some of the peanut gallery who are so dead against the idea of a certain Decepticon character eventually getting a Leader class figure since, as it appears from an official source, maintaining relative (note: didn't say exact) scale is in fact something they're aware of and are trying to accomplish with Animated.
Also; new BB mold? SOLD!
Wasn't Armada 'Beak his first TF work?
EDIT: Yep, and the OzFormers post mentions that fact.
cool a new Bumblebee!
hope they don't muck up arcee
I'd love a Leader Lugnut, but c'mon. A new $10 version of the main kid-appeal character is FAR less risky than a new $40 toy of the occasionally-appearing bad-guy bruiser character.
Anyone else misread the post at first and think they were making a smaller Bulkhead?
oooooooo, just read this.
This excites me in more ways than one.
There are more details in the OzFormers post. It actually makes sense:
Sounds cool to me, though I'm happy with the Activators Bumblebee I've got. It's not all that surprising that we'll see more repaints that aren't new characters. Just means there's less of a chance that I'll buy them, so a bit of a win there. Would be nice to see a mostly black repaint of Blitzwing at some point
I'll give the Bumblebee a look, but it's going to depend on what's included with him. I can't think of in-show accessories other than his boosters. A Sari pack-in would be ideal.
More original characters?
Oh god YES!
